Is that whole extruder moving?!
Also looks like you havent calibrated the Z home switch either. Your print start height is WAY off.

Have you calibrated the extruder also?
Looks like you tossed some parts together and hoped it would work. Take some time and get everything calibrated.

As Floyd says, you need to set up your Z-Axis home switch first which will determine the height between your hot end nozzle and the print bed.
Then you need to ensure that the print bed is level, i.e. the nozzle to print bed distance should be constant at all positions around the print bed.
The distance is equivalent to the thickness of a sheet of paper, approx 0.1mm.

The best place to find videos to help you with problems is probably YouTube, check out this nozzle height and leveling video which covers quite a lot of different printers.

Play Bonny!

Show video of Start print process so I can See.

Also you need a surface for the Filament to stick to.

I use a form of Vinyl Transfer Tape that is Paper Backed see photo.
