Sometimes it takes a bit of good, old fashion inspiration from others practicing your craft to spark a bit of creativity when you are stuck at a wall. As a colorist, I find video breakdowns off all kinds absolutely fascinating, as it highlights not only the work but also how that individual works: What tools do they use, what are they doing first as opposed to last, what do they avoid doing and what do they do habitually. These little traits are interesting trends that you can sometimes pick up on by looking at an artist's breakdown.
Another benefit of visual breakdowns is that it helps those not so intimately involved in a craft to quickly understand what is possible, how a final product could look, and generally encourages them to participate in the creative process.
In a follow-up article to the original round-up, I've gathered more color breakdowns to satisfy your curiosity. Here are several breakdowns from colorist Chris Hall. He provides narration for the grading breakdowns, making them even more informative, and appropriately named "Anatomy of a Grade". Be sure to follow him on Vimeo, so you can keep up with the ongoing series. I've posted a link to each specific breakdown below the videos. Anatomy of a Grade - Episode 01 - Manzanar

I hope these color breakdowns have been educational and inspired you to pick up a style, technique, or tool you never previously knew used or knew about. Its this reason I find breakdowns and behind the scenes so useful, as they seem to become more useful as you learn more about your craft and can pick up small, subtle techniques used by others more talented in that area, whether it be color, editing, or learning non-film related skills in your everyday life.
