I'm trying to achieve this same look in AE

Check out the thumbnail for this video. What effects did they use to get this look? My footage was filmed with a JVC 100u. Is it even possible for me to recreate this look with that camera or do I need something with more dynamic range?

this recipe will get you 85% the way there.
small f stop 1.4
use a polarized lens so there's no reflections and you can compress the dynamic range better
record for the highlights because you're going to crush the blacks anyway rgb input black 10 with individual levels or contrast. There's no white-white either so drop the output white 255 to 235.
unsharp filter once or twice in ae
vibrance in ae 10% if your camera isn't a red
some parts look like 7% tinted pinkish-brown
