Look, maybe the Focus adds throttle on its own, as Suss said - but traditionally in a manual there is no forward motion with idle. Knock yourself out with the video.
I've driven manuals ranging from 1965 to this here 2012. You do not need the throttle to initial the car moving forward. It's not some new fangled technology.... you are basically slipping the clutch slowly enough until the car starts moving forward. Not how I would recommend driving around town, but it will work.
