Of course, people will pass by only once and the shadows will be a lot smaller than the letters
You do realise that the shadows of the people walking behind the cloth will make it impossible to read the black lettering?

Stage cloth or cheese-cloth is my best guess.
I have to do a DVCam shoot in which I have to achieve the following: In the background, about 45ft away from the camera, there needs to be a fabric or canvas with a white circle with the word RAVEON in black letters inside it. The 10 ft diameter circle should be produced by a 2k junior placed 10ft behind the surface with the letters, so as to be able to see in that circle the shadows of people walking behind the fabric. My question is: what color and/or texture should this fabric or canvas be, so that we only see a white circle with the words where the light hits it and the rest is black? I know the right way to do is is to test different materials but, as usual, the budget doesn't allow for it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you want a sharp circle, I would get hold of a leko rather than use a 2k. You will much more easily be able to project a sharp-edged circle with that fixture.

For the canvas, you should go with a bleached Muslin.
