As there isn't any circuit detail with the video did you just guess? If so there is little chance of getting it working - Btter follow one of the web published plans for a tessela coil.

For a Tesla coil of this size I would recommend to just build it as a spark gap Tesla coil driven by an ignition coil.
This site has a good ignition coil driver circuit

or you can use a relay driver.

What instructions or plan did you follow to get this far? What did they say about driving it?

Without knowing some thing about your circuit it's hard to design / recommend how to drive it.
