I want to make it seem like this couple is walking out of the screen. I have no idea how to do this as I have very, very minimal experience with After Effects. Please help! Thank you!

Shoot two actors walking the way you want on a good, properly-lit chroma key wall with a good camera. Key 'em. Fill 'em with black.

You might even consider having the actors walk on a treadmill to maintain the "M" shape. It gets a LOT easier that way.

No Chroma Key? No actors? But Realistic Movement? You're talking traditional cel animation, which is a can of worms I doubt you want to open.

You might look at the DuDuF IK & Animation Tools(creates Rigs with puppet tool), but I'm think that would be a real long shot in this case.
